DRAG WEEK RECORD BROKEN - LARRY LARSON RUNS A 6.95 AT 209.10 MPH

The 2010 Hot Rod Drag Week is over and it was the best ever! To end the week of competition, Larry Larson threw everything he had at breaking into the 6's on what turned out to be the final run of the night. Here is the first video to show that very run! There's an on board view and an awesome super slo-mo to get a great look at the fire breathing Chevy II that Larry wheeled to a Drag Week record of 6.95. We had two street driven cars run over 200 MPH in the quarter mile, Larry in his Chevy II and Jeff Lutz in his 57 Chevy and both cars survived the grueling 1000 mile drive as well!

The 2012 Fastest Street Car in America! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 19
This episode of HOT ROD Unlimited screams with action from 200-mph street cars at one of the most grueling events in all of motorsports: HOT ROD Drag Week, presented by Gear Vendors. This is the most brutal test anywhere of real drag-racing, street-driven cars, as the competitors hit the road for 1,400 miles to race five times at four different drag strips in five days in a battle to post the lowest average elapsed time at the end of the week. The winner is crowned the HOT ROD Fastest Street Car in America. In this video, we'll follow the chase for that title in Drag Week's most outrageous class, called Unlimited. Imagine cars that run 7 seconds in the quarter mile, in excess of 200 mph, and then drive on public roads—in the rain, over potholes, whatever it takes—to make it to the next race day to do it again. Five times. Ever see a 2,800-horsepower car hauling its own trailer full of tools and parts? You will here. When you wonder how the staff of HOT ROD could ever make the statement that a Lamborghini Aventador "isn't $400,000 fast," this video will prove why with legit American street cars in a battle of speed and survival.
